    That's what I'm thinking. I always use another known opening back to some phishing effort. I keep getting BS inquiries to my paypal, etc.
    I just thought I'd make the populace aware of the attempt.

    Hey,

    This is very weird. We do use a plugin called DragonByte Security and f800riders.org@vsobr.com is our email, but I don't know why it's sending 4 years after the alert. Have you ever been a member on gawker.com? It seems to be a blog website which I don't think we have anything to do with.

    Yah, the email was strange. Not been a paying member, I'm a weasel hanger-on.
    I figured it was a spam, phish thing or something from a parallel universe.
    I sent them my checking account number and social security number anyway just to play it safe.

    Better safe then sorry I'd say it was a once off, but if it does happen again let us know and we'll look into it a little deeper.
